Michael this happens if you use /dev/dsk/xxxxx rather than /dev/rdsk/xxxxx for
partitions above 2 GB.

The fsck man page makes no mention of this but all the examples show
fsck usage as /dev/rdsk/xxxxxx.

If you look in vfstab you will also see that the second field which is used by
vfstab is /dev/rdsk/xxxx

I have seen the same behaviour as you and it puzzled me as well.

I remember I first learned of `fsck -f -y /` after `umount /` in the
thread:

Speaking again now of fsck'ing on demand, eventually I also noticed,

My `man -k fsck` does not yet, but could/ should, point to:

...
-f
Skip fsck on reboot.
-F
Force fsck on reboot.
